The Tesla catches fire, the doors and windows stop working, and the driver barely escapes


It happened last Friday morning (20), in Vancouver, Canada. Driver Jamil Jutha found himself locked in his 2021 Tesla Model Y hot car.

“The doors didn’t open,” Jutha recalled. “The windows wouldn’t roll down.” In the fire, the car lost power to all electronic components, and the standard system for opening doors and windows is among these.

As toxic fumes began to fill the cabin from the vents, Jutha began, understandably, to panic. He could join the group of fatal fire victims in Teslas.

The moment, which caused the car to be damaged, was captured by people at the scene:

Strength in the leg was Jutha’s salvation. “I kicked in the window, got out and called 911 [polícia local] immediately,” he said. The window was broken and he managed to escape. “We’re very lucky that this guy had the sense and strength to throw us out the window,” fire chief Brian Hutchinson told CTV.

Tesla cars have physical systems of fire mode

The accident is being investigated and firefighters are trying to find out what exactly went wrong with the car.

Like any electric vehicle that opens, Tesla cars rely on mechanical devices to open the doors. But Jutha says the emergency protocol for opening the door in the event of a power failure is not intuitive – so much so that she herself did not know and had to break a window.

There is a small lever next to the button to open and close the windows for the driver and front passenger. The procedure is under the door. On the Model X, it is necessary to remove the attached part of the inner cover to access, on the Model S, the motor is located under the seat. The facilities should be open to anyone, including those who don’t own a Tesla and may find themselves stuck in one.

Jutha encourages other Tesla car owners to familiarize themselves with what to do if the same situation happens to them. And since you are not the only owner who can end up in one of these, the video below is recommended for everyone.

In the video you can see how there is no standard between Tesla cars, how unclear the procedures are, and how some of them can cause damage to the car: which means they can cause damage just by measuring.
